Just for you

This is a card for sketch 34 on Cutie Sunday:

It's also for yesterday's 365 challenge: Touchy Feely Friday - this is all about texture: 'Try to incorporate 3 different methods of adding texture to the paper on your card.'

I rang a piece of green card through the big shot with the birdie cuttlebug embossing folder and then swiped it with green and brown chalk inks, filing it in between to give a more distressed look - so that is one texture. The next texture is the lace that goes across the middle. The third texture is the stamped and embossed 'just for you' image (a stamp that I acquired this morning) and the colouring in is also an embossed effect using Sakura gelly roll glaze pens.

The background paper with lilies was part of a decoupage kit - lots left over - and has an envelope with a maching insert.

I know it's late, but I'm also linking for Stamp Something 'spring' challenge from last week.
